Aaron Parrett began publishing short fiction in 1999. This volume offers a collection of 10, finely crafted short stories that first appeared in magazines and literary journals such as Open Spaces, The Massachusetts Review, The Wisconsin Review, and Pearl.

This letterpress edition was hand-printed on a Vandercook 219 in the winter of 2017 and features woodcuts, linoleum cuts, and engravings by artist Seth Roby. Each book offered here has been hand-sewn and bound by the author.

The first 40 copies were pre-ordered by contributors to a crowdfunding campaign, and the remaining books are numbered between 44 and 99, signed by both author and artist.
